Magic Mirror

Fri Apr 01, 2016 10:34 am

Hi, I've seen a load of posts and articles of late about making a magic mirror. I have a spare Pi lying around and could get my hands on a monitor to convert.

But would a Pi Zero be powerful enough?

Thinking of having weather, time and maybe sync to an Iphone calender if possible?

I don't see why not, its not about CPU power, more about how easy it it to connect to network etc.

I used an A+ for this project. The single USB port was used attach a WiFi dongle that connected to the network to served the webpage (that had all the information shown for the mirror).
